Description

This episode is sponsored by Awesome Socks Club, a sock subscription for charity. Go to http://awesomesocks.club/SciShow to sign up between now and December 11th to get a new pair of fun socks each month in 2021. 100% of after-tax profit will go to decrease maternal and child mortality in Sierra Leone, which is one of the most dangerous places to be pregnant in the world.

Researchers are developing a flu vaccine with the potential to target many different strains at once. Also, bacterial meningitis may have something to do with special RNA.

Hosted by: Michael Aranda
